Investigative judge Hamid Ganjola said Slavoljub Scekic, who headed Montenegro's criminal-investigation police, was gunned down with two short bursts of automatic gunfire shortly after midnight near his home in the republic's capital, Podgorica.

Police launched a manhunt for the killer and have reportedly rounded up 20 suspects.

Scekic was the third high-ranking Montenegrin police official killed since 2000.
